My First College Center

September 18, 2005 at 2:30am By: Mr. Wilson Posted in 625 Elm Street

I was scheduled to be an AR for two soccer games at Midland Lutheran in Fremont today. Instead, I ended up having the opportunity to center the women’s game. The original center hurt her ankle playing soccer last night, so she decided it would be better if she limped along the sideline than if she limped in the center of the field. The game turned out to be pretty easy, with Dordt defeating Midland 3-0. It certainly wasn’t a premiere level game, and it was quite a bit easier than a lot of games I’ve done in the past in other leagues, but it’s still nice to get my first college center out of the way. Most first-year college referees don’t get that opportunity (or if they do, they end up with a JV game) so I count myself lucky. Since this center was a bit of an “accident,” there’s a (very, very) small chance I could get another center later this year. I’m not going to hold my breath, but if I rule out the possibility, I risk letting myself slide through the remainder of the season. Nope, I’m going to keep crossing my fingers for my first assigned college center now. Whether it comes this year or next, I can’t wait.
